New designs and a new post! I am excited to share My Mom's Junk new look with you in my latest post!!! It's been quiet on the blog but behind the scenes, it has been a whirlwind of activity.

And that reason has a huge eternal purpose.” In case you had any doubts the answers are: God,I have no shame when it comes to my kids, and I will pay any price.
